Dating advice for 40 s
That means you’ll have to work 10 times harder getting yourself out there!
But attending keggers at frat parties is no longer an option for you (seriously. ), so you need to find more age-appropriate ways to potentially meet men.
But consider this: you’re smarter than you were in your 20s, and you have enough experience in love and life to know what’s worth pursuing and what’s not.
To help you find love at this point in your life, I have some customized tips to help you go from being 40 and single…to being 40 and in love!
Now that you’re 40 and single, things look a lot different than they did when you were in your 20s and single.
You’ve been hurt in relationships…and might even be divorced. Whatever your specific situation, you might think that, at this age, there’s no one out there for you. There absolutely is someone out there who’s right for you, who’s even better than any of your past relationships.
You may not feel confident right now, being 40 and single. But you’ve got to pick yourself up from your pity puddle, not just because men love confident women, but also because you’re damaging your own ego and perception of self-worth the longer you let your past experiences shape how you see yourself. Maybe you’ve successfully raised a productive member of society (your Mini-Me). There’s plenty in your life to feel good about, so don’t focus on having a man to feel confident. Let me say that it is incredibly hard to gauge chemistry when you’re messaging someone you haven’t yet met. You have a 14-year-old son, and you’ve decided that you don’t want to date men with kids younger than yours.
You look at a first date like a job interview, only you’re the one doing the interviewing.
I know you’re tired of the BS that comes with dating, and I know you don’t want to waste time on the wrong guys, but remember to make it fun!
If the man you’re dating always initiates texts, makes plans with you, and pays for everything, sooner or later he’s going to get tired of it.
Show him that you’re into him by reciprocating his effort. I know: it’s 10 times harder to meet men when you’re 40 and single than when you were in college.
